Eligibility and Application
Any Cardozo student is eligible to apply for a summer term abroad. Credits earned during a summer study abroad cannot be used to accelerate a student’s J.D. program.

Other ABA-approved Summer Study Abroad
Cardozo also permits J.D. students to study at non-Cardozo other ABA-approved summer study abroad programs. The National Jurist provides a searchable database of programs to assist students in identifying options, though it may not be completely up to date or accurate. Please also see the UNC's interactive summer study abroad map for helpful links to U.S. law school summer programs abroad.
Any student interested in studying abroad in a non-Cardozo summer program must meet with the Dean of Students for approval prior to application to the program. Among other things, care must be taken by students in selecting courses that do not duplicate course work taken at Cardozo.
Transfer of Credit
Students participating in a Cardozo summer study abroad program will register for Cardozo credit and will receive grades which will be calculated in the grade point average. Students studying through a non-Cardozo program must meet with the Dean of Students in advance of any study abroad program to obtain pre-approval of course choices. Non-Cardozo program credits will not count toward the student’s GPA.
